It is a nice wheel.

Took a couple more badly lit pictures today before putting the 80mm SIDs back on.

What's with the Penguin? Did Kevin do this and the paint?
Nice bike! Let's have some close-ups!

Yes indeed, mitring, welding and painting all done by the talented Mr. Winter.
Frame was a 30th present from my wonderful wife, although I had to wait until I was about 30.5 before I could ride it.

The penguin used to be his headbadge, but was a special request for this frame as now he tends to use a stylised W logo.

More pictures to follow...

Nice. I've not seen this in the metal yet. Are you riding much Pete?

Wotcher Jackie, how's tricks? Not nearly as much riding as I should, other than commuting.

That said, the commute to the shed can take anything up to about three hours and be potentially ninety-five percent off road.

And lunch break can be Blanchland moor on occasion, if there's paint drying.

Hoping to do some painting tomorrow as it happens.....
